Delicious ice cream that everyone must try at least once. I had their raspberry chip ice cream and highly recommend it. Their cotton candy is a hit with kids. And the location is great - grab some cones and enjoy in fountain square while people watching.

A veritable institution in Downtown Cincinnati, I could visit them only once. I found the regular cup size itself to be filling and priced appropriately. Located centrally near the popular ice rink, one can watch the game and enjoy the ice cream.

Graeter's ice cream is one of the gems of Cincinnati. The ice cream is made in small batches. Their chip flavors are unique in that there are chunks of chocolate in them not little chips. The chocolate is the same chocolate they make their candy out of so it not waxy. The chocolate just melts on your tongue. I believe... More

All of the donuts were freshly made and the coffee was terrific. It was exactly what we were looking for. Its also the first time I've been in a Greaters and NOT had... More

This is the best ice cream place in the Midwest. Do yourself a favor and get one of the ice creams that have the huge chunks of chocolate in it. They certainly are not chips. The chocolate is wonderful.

Graeter's Ice Cream! Some of the richest, creamiest most delectable ice cream you have ever had! Their seasonal special flavors are exquisite. Don't miss Peach in early summer and Pumpkin in the fall. Their Chocolate Chocolate Chunk and Raspberry Chocolate Chip are legendary. The menu is completed with hand made confections and wonderful pastries. They even made a special ice... More
